Hot and Cold Therapy

Medshop offers a diverse selection of hot and cold therapy supplies for muscle and joint pain relief. Temperature-related treatment is the most common way to relieve muscle and joint pain. Therapeutic while being non-invasive, hot and cold therapy is great for mending injuries.

Choosing which technique to use on injuries depends on the type of pain the patient is experiencing. For example, cold therapy should be used for sprains, strains, bumps, and bruises. Furthermore, a patient experiencing a new injury and/or inflammation (swelling) should use ice, as it decreases blood flow to the injury. By slowing blood circulation, this treatment reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, and pain. Use cold treatments if the area is swollen or bruised. On the other hand, heat works best on chronic muscle and joint pain. Heat will increase the blood flow and supply oxygen as well as nutrients to the injured area to promote healing. It can reduce pain, relax sore muscles, ligaments, tendons, and increases flexibility.

In other words, pain that recurs can be treated with heat and results in decreased muscle spasms and increased range of motion. Hot and cold therapy supplies can be used alternately, but it is advised that patients always use cold first if there is swelling, never use heat on an open wound or stitches and anyone suffering from poor circulation and/or diabetes, take caution.

Browse Medshop for hot and cold therapy supplies that are top-quality, but also cost efficient. Our products include various selections of heating pads, mobile or stationary heating units and reusable ice compacts and more. Need more information or help choosing the right product?
